Well folks, it took almost 2 years of research, testing, and a ton a patience to find the perfect boat for my family. I found a 2008 X-45 with the LY6. The boat is in perfect condidtion and was completely inspected my the MC dealer, including a compression test, just to make sure. Plus its under warranty until 2014.
Some of the main areas I focused on was build quality, ride (our lake can get rough at times), wake potential, and room. We have 3 small boys which are getting more and more into wakeboarding and need a boat which we can take all of them and their friends wihout falling all over each other and required gear. The X-45 is just plain big. However with the LY6, this boat handles/rides better than all of the other boats I drove. Those included the Nautique 236/230, Supra 24, Tige RZ4, Malibu LSV 23 & 24, X15, X30 and X-Star. All of those other boat are quality rides and liked each one in their own way. The X-45 just met our needs better.
